I'm enjoying my course in reference services so far... here is a quote from a short introductory paper I just wrote for the class:

"I used to think a reference librarian was like a docent to guide one through a neatly structured inventory, nonchalantly pointing out perfectly relevant documents. I now think of a reference librarian as a professional guide on an information safari, navigating through a wild, ever-changing landscape, able to hunt down and target elusive sources."

The whole paper is published here.
